The Rundown: Diana faces a displaced warrior from another time as old enemies team up to end her.
The warrior Valda has already killed one man and is prepared to kill more until Diana intervenes to determine why the displaced warrior is in modern day Boston. As the two fight, Diana attempts to talk to Valda, but the warrior has only one thing on her mind and that is killing the creature she was fighting and anyone standing in her way.
After removing the warrior from the area around civilians, Wonder Woman attempts to talk to the warrior again. She even offers to help find the creature that Valda was hunting. Unbeknownst to both warriors, a former friend and current enemy have joined forces with one goal in mind; kill Wonder Woman.
The Story: Steve Orlando crafts an entertaining story in this issue. There are a lot of elements that are interesting enough for me to want to see explored, but the main story left me flat. Valda wasn’t compelling enough of a character for me to connect to in any real way and all of the side stories were more engaging. This was a good story, but ultimately forgettable because it never really seemed to be about anything. That being said, it was entertaining and I look forward to seeing the side stories progress further.
The Art: Max Raynor’s art is what really engaged me with this issue. The action was great and the characters look fantastic. There are some great backgrounds throughout and there was a harmony to the visuals as the story progressed.
